Colorado Media Day: Buffaloes Want To End Quarterback 'Competition'

The Colorado Buffaloes had a chance to speak with the media as a team on Saturday during the Fall Sports Media Day, and a chief topic in play was the brewing quarterback competition, which head coach Jon Embree nearly called a quarterback controversy.

Jon Woods of The Ralphie Report has the details of the event, and according to Woods, the Buffaloes coaching staff is just as eager to pick a quarterback as the fans are:

[Embree] said he wants to chose a quarterback as soon as possible so that the "offense knows who's leading them when they go play CSU."

In the 2011 NCAA season, senior QB Tyler Hansen passed for 2883 yards and 20 TD, but the California native is now fighting for a spot on the Cincinnati Bengals roster -- meaning the Buffaloes will have to pick a new starter among the six inexperienced underclassman currently on the roster.
